How many hours do you need to learn the basics of rogue, hack and NetHack? #retrocomputing #retrogaming

@pooltoymae I found nethack's complexity is intimidating. Now my plan is to start from rogue, the original game, and working my way up. The original BSD had a manual called "A Guide to the Dungeons of Doom", which can still be found in the FreeBSD documentation: docs.freebsd.org/44doc/usd/30. Rogue should be 1 or 2 orders of magnitude simpler than nethack, I hope.

@niconiconi @pooltoymae It can be fun, but as a younger person I always ended up at a point saying "well, this is tough and SSDC is more accessible so let's go back to that"
